Circle officer (CO) Hazratganj DK Singh has worked out a 'kidnapping' case by arresting the accused.

A youth, Sunil alias Baba of Fateh Ali Talab locality in Alambagh, went missing three years back and his kin fearing he had been kidnapped lodged a complaint with the Alambagh police. But, the cops did not probe into the case.

On the other hand, the Aashiana police recovered the youth's body the very next day. However, without either identifying the victim or probing the case, the cops submitted final report in the court stating there was no scope for an investigation.

On Tuesday, CO Hazratganj picked up prime suspect and Baba's friend Shiv of Nepalganj, Telibagh who confessed to have eliminated Baba.

Shiv said that Baba was having an illicit relation with his wife and he had seen the duo in a compromising state on the night of August 13.

Shiv and his friend Tony battered Baba to death while the duo was coming to drop the victim at latter's house. The two was arrested on Wednesday.
